Synopsis

Whoever's Heard of a Hibernating Pig? by Shen Roddie, Shen Roddie

Poor Pig - all he wants to do is play with his friends, but, being squirrels, hedgehogs, a dormouse and a tortoise, they have all gone to sleep for the winter. So Pig has the grand idea of going to sleep himself.

Reviews

Winter can be a frustrating time for a lively pig; the snows have fallen and it's perfect for sledging but where are his friends? Hedgehog, Tortoise, Squirrel and Dormouse are all in bed hibernating and poor pig has no one to play with. There is an obvious solution to his dilemma, and this very amusing story follows Pig's attempt to stay in bed until spring, but really, whoever's heard of a hibernating pig? The illustrations are energetic and colouful, with Pig depicted as a very jolly porker who is far too irrepressible to ever keep his head on the pillow for more than five minutes. Pigs are very stubborn animals, though, and this one proves to be very inventive in passing the time until his friends wake up. Pig is a very entertaining character that should charm the pants off any young reader who likes a giggle; he even has a new word for our vocabulary, Oinkadoo! Hopefully this is not the last that will be seen of Pig and his pals; they deserve a lot more outings in better weather. (Kirkus UK)
